Very drinkable wine. Very smooth and easy. A good wine that would go with many foods.

Irony:
Most of us didn't imagine where we would be right now. Sure, we dreamed of being firemen, astronauts, rock stars and superheroes, but life often takes you where you didn't expect it to.

Most of us didn't imagine where we would be right now. Sure, we dreamed of being firemen, astronauts, rock stars and superheroes, but life often takes you where you didn't expect it to. My brother and I worked every harvest from the time we could ride our bikes. After college, our careers took us beyond the land our grandfather planted in 1924. Ironically, today we are more fulfilled, working side-by-side at the family vineyard & winery. We didn't plan it or expect it, but we are enjoying this strange twist in our lives. That's Irony - a bottle full of life's strange twists and a celebration of our family's life-long commitment to producing the finest quality wines. -- Chris & Jay Read less

    4 glass rating. My wife and I had it at a restaurant the other night with Beef Wellington. It was excellent. Very smooth, like silk. It is bold but soft on the tannins. It was a great combination! I will purchase a bottle and try with another dish, maybe a heavy pasta.

    The 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is deeply colored with ripe blackberry and raspberry aromas with spicy layers of cinnamon, cloves and hints of toast. Ripe black cherry, black currant and light vanilla oak round out the concentrated palate, balanced by firm yet silky tannins.

    Irony 2008 Monterey County Pinot Noir opens with aromas of ripe, red cherry, vanilla and undertones of earthy clove and mushroom. Rhubarb flavors are layered with accents of toasted vanilla and soft tannins, delivering a balanced, medium-bodied wine with a smooth finish. Enjoy this wine with lamb, grilled salmon and medium-hard cheeses. - Winery
